Ghana and Cape Verde are scheduled to play an intriguing match on January 14 during the African Cup of Nations 2024 at Stade Felix Houphouet-Boigny.
Before leaving for the Ivory Coast for this year’s AFCON tournament, Ghana played an unimpressive 0-0 draw with Namibia. They will be looking to build on their shocking 2022 group stage exit after losses to Morocco and a 3-2 setback to minnows, Comoros. Ghana’s new coach, Chris Hughton, is no stranger to the English leagues. He was formerly the manager of Newcastle United and Birmingham City. Hughton’s job is to revive Ghana’s ambitions of winning the AFCON trophy for the first time in 40 years, having last done so in 1982. Ghana should take note of the recent setbacks at the hands of Mexico, the United States, and Comoros. Their lone recent victory came versus Madagascar. Thomas Partey, an Arsenal midfielder, is unavailable due to injury. Inaki Williams, a standout for Athletic Club, will be someone to watch for this team in his place.
In their opening Group A matchup versus Ghana, Cape Verde will be hoping to repeat their success from the 2022 AFCON finals, when they advanced to the round of 16. Cape Verde hasn’t been able to sustain that momentum lately, despite their impressive-looking six-match unbeaten streak from the end of February 2022 to mid-March of last year, which included victories over Bahrain in an international friendly as well as victories over Sierra Leone, Eswatini, and Burkina Faso. They have suffered setbacks versus Togo, Algeria, and Comoros in 3 of their last 5 matches across all competitions; the last 2 losses were suffered in international friendlies. Ryan Mendes, a vital player from Cape Verde, is renowned for his amazing technical abilities and winger adaptability. Pedro Leitao Brito, also known as “Bubista,” is the coach of Cape Verde and he is renowned for his physical style of play and rapid attack transitions.
